BASIL PEACH CHAGA ICE TEA
Absolutely one of our favorites this summer!
INGREDIENTS & TOOLS
9 cups of Shaman Shack Herbs Chaga Tea base
2 Cups chopped fresh peaches
1 Cup of fresh basil
Fine mesh strainer
Stir or blend 2 tsp of Shaman Shack Herbs Chaga powder in 9 cups of water.
Melt ½ cup of honey with ½ cup of hot water until fully dissolved. Then add a ½ cup of honey mixture to steeped tea and stir (save the rest for later)
Squeeze the juice of 1 large fresh lemon into the steeped tea
In a large saucepan bring peaches, the remaining half of the honey mixture and ½ cup of water to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring, until peaches begin to break up
Muddle 1 cup of fresh basil in a cup & add to tea base
Add peach mixture to tea; let cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes then refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours
Pour the Chaga tea into a pitcher and serve with ice cubes if desired.
